Team Penske, Discount Tire Extend Partnership

Team Penske has extended its relationship with Discount Tire for multiple years, the team announced Wednesday morning (August 7).

Discount Tire will sponsor Brad Keselowski‘s No. 2 Ford Mustang in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series for 15 races under the new deal, up from 10 races currently, including the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400.

Discount Tire will remain an associate sponsor for Ryan Blaney‘s No. 12 and Joey Logano‘s No. 22 Cup Mustangs, Austin Cindric‘s No. 22 Xfinity Series Mustang, and the Nos. 2 and 22 NTT IndyCar Series Chevrolets of Josef Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud.

“We’re proud to continue our winning relationship with Roger and Team Penske,” Michael Zuieback, Discount Tire CEO, said in a press release. “This partnership over the last decade has meant a great deal to our company, our team and our customers. We look forward to celebrating more successes and championships as we expand our presence in the Cup Series with Brad and all of Team Penske.”

“Team Penske’s partnership with Discount Tire continues to grow and is a bond that has reaped many benefits for both companies,” team owner Roger Penske said. “Motorsports has helped build the Discount Tire brand, connecting with both employees and consumers, and we look forward to more success together as the company expands its role with our team in 2020 and beyond.”

Discount Tire first joined Team Penske in 2010 in the Xfinity Series, where Keselowski won the team’s first NASCAR championship driving the No. 22 Dodge Challenger.
